The LaPlatte Crossing footbridge is a community project to link the trails of the LaPlatte Nature park on the east and west side of the LaPlatte River. A bridge design by Scott Silverstein of PERCH engineering has been approved by the Shelburne Development Review board. The building permit will allow construction of the footbridge to begin this fall, and hopefully to be completed by next spring. Actual construction will be done by an all volunteer crew.
THE OPPORTUNITY: To help make the LaPlatte Footbridge a reality! Your dollars will literally make this project happen. Your dollars will help purchase the materials needed to complete the bridge as Scott designed it.
CURRENT STATUS: $5,000 has already been raised towards the overall cost of this project. Estimated costs put this project between $10,000 - $12,000. With your donation, you can help bring that number down.
